Reporter Goes Berserk While Covering Event Where Press Criticized
A little thin-skinned, aren't we?
One thing the press can't stand is criticism. And sometimes the reaction of members of the press to criticism goes so over the top that the results are absolutely hilarious. Such was the case of Marci Shatzman, a reporter for the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel Forum Publishing Group who was covering a routine meeting of the West Boca Community Council in Florida. What set Marci off to act completely unprofessional at the 43 second mark of this video was guest speaker Andre Fladell daring to criticize members of the press for acting...unprofessional.
First Fladell says, "Journalists have no respect for their own profession...no respect for their country."
This was too much for Shatzman who went into full berserk mode with this outburst: "I totally disagree! I'm a member of the press! I'm not going to sit here and listen to this crap! I'm leaving!"
As she stormed out, Shatzman threatened to boycott any future meetings of the community council that she claimed won't receive "one goddamned bit of coverage!"
When Fladell calmly continued to speak, Shatzman briefly returned with this encore screech: "DON'T LISTEN TO HIM! HE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT! ....HE'S FULL OF YOU KNOW WHAT!"
Fladell again returned to speaking but Shatzman provided one final bit comedic entertainment in the form of a couple of primal screams that could be heard through the walls from outside.
